|HIGHLIGHT? Dapper Ric looking all Clark Kent.|
What does one dine on when the mobular boss is laying in his own pool of blood?
Eggs Florentine and Lemoncello. That's what.
Settle in and let me tell you what happened this week on the show!
Maxie gets the part of Marjorie for the movie. Lulu seems jealous. She was jelly even though she encouraged Maxie to go for the part. She listened to the words on the script and I believe it dawned on her that the movie was about she and Dillon. Not sure how long I'm going to last with this. Although having Maxie involved is way better than Lulu being the only one.
Kiki's mad that Morgan and Mama slept together. She gave them both a piece of her mind. I would have had played/written her reactions WAY differently as you well know. It would involved nasty tie-up sex with Morgan and taunting of Ava with an Instagram video of everything. But! They opted for the more calm way out. Wasn't impressed.
Silas murder mystery solved on August 31--the promised "one month murder mystery" was done. So, were you shocked? *crickets*. Yeah. ok.
My fave part of the whole week was Nina telling her Mama off and Franco getting her through it. He's going to take care of her now--and yes, call me old-fashioned but I loved those scenes!! He was so tender and caring. She said all the things that needed to be said to her Mom and now they can build a life. She's blowing him a kiss right there...
And he catches it~!! Now supposedly they will be integrated to the canvas soon. I've given my ideas over and over again. Right now both RoHo and MS are on vacation so while some of you are happy, I shall be sad and bored.
ANNA !! It's Anna! She's back, she gave Emma a little teddy bear in a kilt. Then, she talked to Sam about life and Sam said "hey, since you're not in the FBI anymore, please come work with me on the ELQ scam". And she does, like right that second! Anna gets Sloane to say he'll tell on Nikolas for rigging the election unless he gives ELQ back to Michael. Ok, so Sloane goes to Wyndemere and doesn't go through with it at all...because you know Cassadines. They will kill you. Sam and Jake are pissed that Sloane refuses to name Nikolas.
And also at the Cassadines, Spencer readies for School in his nice British attire. He talks to Hayden and almost eats toast. Drives Nikolas nuts. Hayden and Nikolas decide to go for a swim. They get their bathing suits on. I hope we get to see the Cassadine pool someday. I want gargoyles.
BiPolar mania. Good scenes here and I like the way they dressed Morgan. Looked all slept-in and grungy. He and Maurice did the dance and although I still stand by my "he's a meth-head" idea, the scene worked. I'm very torn on the whole thing because it's so close to so many people. Having a soap explore the family connections and reactions is interesting but delicate. You know what I've said about it--so I won't go on and on. Michael talked to Morgan at the Metro and much of this did end up being "Michael the good, Morgan the bad". I'm willing to wait to see where this goes. I do hope they include the diagnosis process.
Why am I adding this? Because Olivia takes Rocco for a walk on the docks at twilight. What could possibly happen? She's talking to Ned when Julian comes out. (I guess so he'll be in the area when Sonny is shot?). Olivia knows better, that's all I'm saying.
Carson Wedding: Graciella readies the food. All the men were ready and sitting around. TJ was taken by thugs and held at the warehouse. (Wedding cake down!). TJ calls Sonny and says come alone...yada yada. Sonny does go alone (no mob boss ever really goes alone) and apparently, didn't put on a bullet proof vest. More on that later.
Meanwhile, the ladies are at Carly's getting ready for the wedding ..all except the bride! They give her gifts: Something borrowed, old, new, and blue. Valerie makes an impression on Lulu by giving Carly her Mom's cross to wear.
Wedding Dress. Nice Color. Maxie looks resplendent too. I personally like Carly's hair different but that's just me.
He's down. Sonny's shot by some mystery gloved hand that peeps out from the curtain. He falls slo-motion onto the floor. Shot in the chest. Next week we'll be treated to his 'life or death' situation. (If anyone thinks he's dying then, well, you are a tater). He looks like he's doing push ups in this photo. LOL
Ok, so...let me ask you: What is this supposed to do for anything? Why would we have another damn shooting--? Why Why Why. We know he's not going to die. We know he's not going to get out of the mob. Is this all for the 'mystery' of the shooter? We know it's not Julian. Do I care who it is?
Nope. RUMOR says Carlos. I want it to be Faith. David came up with the brilliant idea of Claudia. I'm also thinking Mayor Lomax or Steve Harvey. giggle
This shooting situation begs me to comment on the fact that GH just has too much going on with too many characters. Yet AGAIN, some new sub-plot is started with Sonny 'dying' in the hospital. Um, don't we have enough going on? There's the whole mental health issue with Morgan. Why not have Carson actually get married (get it over with) and then deal with the Morgan issue? Nope--let's shoot Sonny and keep it up with this insane mob war mystery. Sonny's been involved in bombings and shootings for some 20 years now. TWENTY YEARS.
You'd think he'd learn and wear that bullet proof vest whilst going to rescue a hostage.
SCENE OF THE WEEK: Nina confronts Mama. Perfect acting.
PROP of the WEEK: Poor Cake. First it's not baked right...and then it ends up on the ground when THUGS take TJ.
FACE OF THE WEEK: Maxie sees Donna Mills in an orange jumpsuit.
That's it! I'm still waiting it out to see this transition process and if I can get hooked on any stories again. Right now? I guess I'm glad my work is ramping up because I can skip some days and FF.
